Tyson to pay $3.95 million for chemical accidents in Council Bluffs, other plants

Source: Daily Nonpareil

Tyson Foods Inc. has agreed to pay a $3.95 million civil penalty to settle alleged violations of Clean Air Act regulations covering the prevention of chemical accidents at its facilities in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, the Justice Department and Environmental Protection Agency announced Friday.

Tyson, headquartered in Springdale, Ark., is the world’s largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef and pork.

Tyson Foods Inc. has worked cooperatively with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to resolve concerns over the maintenance of refrigeration systems at food production plants in four states, company spokesman Gary Mickelson said in a statement.

The agreement resolves the EPA concerns through the payment of a civil penalty and creation of a special program for meeting Risk Management Plan requirements of the federal Clean Air Act at 23 Tyson Foods facilities in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, Mickelson said.
